How much did it cost for CBS to remake "The Early Show" into "CBS This Morning"? According to The New York Times, the price tag was about $40 million.
The company took a restructuring charge of about $46 million, mostly related to the show’s overhaul, which included shedding the show’s longtime “Early Show” title, the story notes.
The network laid off almost two dozen staff members and moved from a Fifth Avenue studio to a new studio at the CBS News headquarters, the story says. CBS said it expects to recoup the costs in 12 to 18 months, according to the piece.
